    Hi! :) I will start by saying this site is the coolest thing since sliced bread!
    My name is Melanie and I've been a HUGE Tacoma fan for eons! I knew there had to be others that shared my obsession, so I'm completely ecstatic to have found this website! This is my 3rd Tacoma/4th Toyota. Previously I had an FJ Cruiser but traded back to the Tacoma. Not sure that was the best idea I've ever had, but this website has already saved me the huge $$$$ fix for the compass/temp gauge. Thank you so much to the kind souls that posted the fix!

    Since the picture was taken, I hit a Bambi and I'm exporing options for replacing my front bumper. Can anyone offer some advice for an economically priced badass front bumper that will still accommodate my fog lights? Unfortunately, money is an object, so I would prefer an economical, yet still badass bumper. Any suggestions will be immensely appreciated!

    Thank you! I'm so thrilled to have found this site!!
    Mel

    Welcome to TW! :)

    Lowest cost option is to find a used stock bumper on Craiglist, scrapyard, on this forum, etc.

    All the offroad plate bumpers (whether All-Pro, ARB, CBI, etc.) are going to be around $1000 with shipping. And you won't be able to re-use the stock fog lights without some custom-fabricated bracketry.
